The Buddha was from Bamiyan, Central Asia
Contemporary occupants of the Tarim Basin, a geographical area in the Xinjiang Uyghur autonomous region of northwest China, are both biologically and culturally diverse.

The region borders numerous countries and was historically a part of the Silk Road trade route between the West and the East [where the Buddha, a Shakyian/Scythian, was born and raised]... More
